*Soap, by definition, is made by reacting Sodium Hydroxide (a.k.a. NaOH, lye) with oils. This applies to every single soap, ever. NaOh is completely used up in the reaction. None remains in final product. This process of soap-making, or “saponification”, results in glycerol (a.k.a glycerin) and soap.
